P. Manikandan studying in the 8th standard lives in AIM for Seva Free Student Hostel for Boys in Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu. When many of the other boys would prefer to play outdoor games, he would enjoy drawing sketches in his art book. Nurturing his artistic talent by encouraging him to pursue it gives us great happiness. He is enthusiastic to participate in competitions such as the District Level Drawing Competition organised by District Child Protection Unit, Kanyakumari District where he grabbed the second position.
